As the first dental office in Lone Tree, we are proud to see the patients who first visited us nearly 20 years ago bring their own children into our office. Meadows Dental Group is not like the typical pediatric dental office – we work hard to put both our young patients and their parents at ease.
Find out what sets Meadows Dental Group apart by calling 303-790-2323 today. We welcome patients as young as 3 from throughout the Lone Tree area, including Highlands Ranch, Centennial and more.
What You and Your Child Can Expect
The first time you bring your child to Meadows Dental Group is a “Happy Visit.” Our dentists and staff will get to know you and your child, without pushing any procedures.
Unlike pediatric dentists, we encourage parents to come back to the exam room with their child.
As family dentists, we want your family to feel comfortable coming to Meadows Dental Group. That’s why we believe in building your trust and educating you and your child.
We also focus on your child’s comfort. During the “Happy Visit,” your child will be able to:
- Enjoy cartoons or other programs on the ceiling-mounted TVs in our exam rooms
- Undergo only the treatments they allow our team to do, such as polishing, counting teeth or an exam
- Pick a toy out of a treasure chest when the appointment is over!
For children who accompany a parent to our office, we also have toys and a DVD player in our reception area. Kids can comfortably bide their time while mom and dad get their dental care.
What Sets Our Kids’ Dentists Apart
Children who have bad experiences at the dentist when they’re young can stay fearful long into adulthood. This can result in extreme negative consequences for oral health.
Meadows Dental Group recognizes the importance of getting kids comfortable with coming to the dentist. The “Happy Visit” described above is designed to do just that, but we recognize that some children need additional help relaxing.
Our dentists are skilled in sedation dentistry, and we can provide nitrous oxide to your child if he or she is struggling during an appointment. Often known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that doesn’t require needles. It’s safe, and it helps many kids who are scared get comfortable.
Pediatric dental sedation can be especially helpful if your child suffers some injury to the teeth, gums or mouth. We see kids as young as 2 in dental emergencies such as:
- Chipped, cracked or broken tooth
- Damage to both baby teeth and permanent teeth should be treated as a dental emergency
- Object caught in between teeth
- Damage to brackets or wires for children who have braces
- Sports injury
Lone Tree is an active community. We love to cheer on our local Jaguars, Raiders and other teams, but we know that contact sports pose a risk to oral health. That’s why Meadows Dental Group is proud to provide:
Free athletic mouthguards to Rock Canyon High School football players and Regis Jesuit High School athletics
